Love Jacked is a sophisticated small town romantic comedy, directed by Alfons Adetuyi and written by Rob Adetuyi that often evokes the comedic rhythm and reveals of a French farce: it involves a fake wedding, a fake funeral, and a complicated love triangle spanning two continents, North America and Africa.
The film is a Canadian-South African co-production with the story situated in Southern California (shot in Toronto and Cape Town) with a brief story foray to Africa (shot in Cape Town and environs).
